Warm tatoo

Recommended Posts

Hey folks.

I'm not quite sure I'm asking the right place, but I do not know where else to go.

A couple of years ago I got a really nice tattoo done.

It is quite a large tattoo (about 7 hours of work in a day) and it contains a lot of red, despite the fact that I am aware that it can cause an allergic reaction.

It healed really well. But I sometimes get a warm feeling in the skin in a certain part of the tattoo.

It's not a burning sensation, but more like someone holding a warm hand on the skin. It comes once in a while, and typically lasts most of the day, after which it goes away on its own again.

It does not itch and the skin does not seem to be swollen.

Have any of you experienced anything like this?

does anyone have a clue what it might be?

And is that something I should get examined by the doctor?

Thanks in advance

Actual reactions to red are pretty rare. I think it's a hold over from the old days when Red contained mercury.

It doesn't itch, it isn't swollen, then I wouldn't worry about it. You'd probably have to see the doctor while it was warm. Good luck with that.

I have lines that raise up once in a while. Black ink. I don't worry about it.

    • Personally, I really like it. It's bold and ties in nicely with your other pieces. But this is just my opinion, and what matters is what you think. Try to stay calm and take your time. But as I said, I think it looks good.
    • Hello All. Im going through massive regret and anxiety from a recent cover up that turned out really dark, its almost a blackout. Its totally not what i iexpected. I'm thinking white over black ink could be a soloution to save this and have it looking good ? i've seen some really good results with white. I never wanted or imagined so much black, and did everything to avoid it, but the artist was not clear about his vision, and im  in shock at the moment. going through massive anxiety and depression. If any of you care to say what you think about it, i'd appreciate it
    • Tattoos don't heal on a schedule. 4-6 weeks is a general guideline. I had one that didn't completely settle for a year. It was the purple color that didn't look quite right. I forgot about it and at some point I looked at it and noticed that it looked perfect.
